That possibility appears to be based at this point on some folks not letting the absence of facts get in the way of using a tragedy to push an agenda

But I think we have to add him to the list of those that we worry about who could have effects of chronic, repetitive brain trauma," said Bailes, chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at the NorthShore University HealthSystem in Chicago.

"We don't have any strong evidence (yet about Seau), and we know that people commit suicide for other reasons. … But to me it's also concerning due to the fact that he had such a long playing history," said Bailes.

Because it is always a good medical practice to make a dfiagnosis without examining the patient

RIP Mr. Seau - a sad story
